5:20 – Three Pop Culture Titans discuss Life, Death and what lies between
November 22, 1963 saw the deaths of three of the most influential men of the 20th century. JFK’s assassination dominated the headlines that day, so few people realize it is also the death day of CS Lewis and Aldous Huxley, the author of Brave New World. These three men had vastly different opinions on life and spirituality. Kennedy was a Catholic politician who firmly supported the separation of Church and State. Lewis was a former atheist who is arguably the most beloved Christian author of the last 100 years. And Huxley was a self-described agnostic who dabbled in mysticism and psychedelic drugs. In his book Between Heaven and Hell, Peter Kreeft imagines these three men meeting and conversing in Purgatory. He joins us with his theory as to what each man would have to say.
